Dear Mom,

When people ask me, "what was Christmas like when you were a kid?" My answer is immediate. "It was like having a Macy's truck dumped onto the living room floor except everything was bedazalled and wrapped, sprinkled with glitter, and chosen specifically for you! Coats, hats, gloves, shoes, dolls, sheets, towels, toasters, bowls, make-up, ice skates, sleds, even a robot, cameras, and of, course, bathing suits. Oh, yes, and a toy; seems that at sixty-years-old we still need toys!

Taking absolutely hours to open all the gifts, we would have to breaks to get some much needed nurishment -- your fabulous rasberry thumbprint cookies, so everyone wouldn't starve to death! The cake was for later.

As a young girl, watching the room fill up with all of those wonderful gifts, with so many lovely clothes from "the City," I was in awe of Santa and his magical powers. Now as I look back and realize what it took for you to make the magic happen, your pure determination, grit, fortitude, generosity and, above all how much you loved your children makes me realize how fortunate I have been to have you as my Mother.

Your Daughter Debbie

Dear Aunt Patsy,

So this is it. I am so sad that this day has arrived and now we can only have our memories. You were a very important part of my life and my earliest memories involved you and Uncle Pat. From Long Island, to Florida as far away as Thailand and many places in between. I will miss our long chats and our visits. Throughout the years they became more special. We shared many happy times and many sad events. I am sure you are re-united with Mom and Dad - You always remembered them fondly and I always appreciated that. Give them a hug for me - and Uncle Pat too. Next Year when baseball season starts - I will be thinking about you with my Yankees garb on and the TV nice and loud, just the way we liked it. You taught us to enjoy the good things in life - whether it was a warm day at the pool or the beach, or an evening out to a nice dinner and a show. One last road trip to the Island. Rest in Peace Aunt Patsy - I Love You, Your Nephew, Michael.

Thanks for always remembering me and making me feel special. I was glad to spend time with you since you moved here to Pennsylvania. We had fun times going for lunch and ice cream with an occasional movie. Holidays with you, Bob and Rosa were always special and nice.
I also want to thank you for teaching me to swim back in the 70s. Going to the lake and cedar beach. I got my love for swimming from you. You will be missed!
Love you!!!

Aunt Patsy,
I'll always cherish the wonderful memories I made with you while I was growing up. So many summers spent at your pool in Mississippi, your delicious lasagna and rolls for dinner - don't forget the good butter! We had so much fun swimming, playing games in the evenings and eating dessert.
You always made me laugh out loud. I loved going to the casino with the whole family, watching the shows, and devouring the buffet! I couldn't wait until I was old enough to gamble. Danny and I used to play in the arcade or wait in the lobby while the adults hit the slots!
I was young, but I remember when you came to visit us in Thailand. That's when I learned you did not like soy sauce lol.
I'm so happy we got to get together for your 80th birthday, that was a huge milestone!
I'll never forget your scent when I hugged you - the beautiful Chanel you always had on your vanity.
They say even if you think you're prepared to say goodbye, when the time actually comes all the memories are going through your mind on repeat.
Here's to many more memories, just in a different place we call heaven.
Love you,

Aunt Patsy,
My favorite memories are many - the time you, Uncle Pat snd Danny came to Thailand to visit us - we shopped, went to the beach in Hua Hin, foot massages and sight seeing...great adventure but you hated that long plane ride - LOL

My favorite-favorite memories though, were going to Biloxi - we always had so much fun and there was always so much to do! We loved the casinos and buffets! You had the best pool too !

You taught me how to make your wonderful macaroni Salad that every time I make it, my family will ask ...is that “Aunt Patsy’s”!

We’ll miss coming to visit you and Mike sleeping on the “blow up” bed and me on the red couch - QVC playing in the background and staying up all hours talking! Haha...

I know you’re surrounded now by your loved ones in heaven and you’ll never be far from our hearts.

Love ya Aunt Patsy,

Rosa Murphy
